Love Fireworks

There were some great fireworks at Gunwharf Quays and Spinnaker Tower on Friday night. My chances of capturing any decent pictures with my iPhone 3GS were pretty slim, but I didn’t let that stop me from trying. I managed to capture 3 or 4 half decent shots, but my favourite is this one processed with DXP. I used the mirror image function from L to R and the end result was heart shaped fireworks (and 2 Spinnaker Towers). Best Camera was then used for the border.


iPhone 3GS: favourite post-processed photo (so far)

This is probably my favourite processed iPhone 3GS photo that I’ve done so far.  I just love it.

iPhone 3GS

The original photo is of a plastic glass and was taken using the Hipstamatic app.  It was a quick snap, which I then processed using the following apps:

  • DXP.  I mirror imaged left to right, the top to bottom.  This didn’t make a huge difference as the original shot was only slightly off centre.  But it did widen the focal point of the photo and helped during the next stage
  • Ezimba.  This was the money app for this photo.  I used the “Swirl – High” option which is considered a “Fun Warp”.  To get just the right level of swirliness, I applied the swirl 12 times.
  • Best Camera.  Added border, vignette and warm overlays to get the final zingy colour.

The original photo, taken with Hipstamatic is below:
